COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everything we love about classic German Pilsner with a hoppy Bohemian twist. Pils is a bright straw colored lager beer with playful carbonation topped with beautiful white foam lace. Delicate lightly toasted malt flavors underscore noble German hop character. Hallertau-grown Magnum hops deliver the lupulin foundation while generous amounts of Spalter Select hops bring floral aromatic and spicy herbal notes. As a twist on the traditional Pils, we dry hop with German Saphir for a touch of bergamot zest and lemongrass. A refreshing, light-bodied and hop-driven Pils.

Draft in a flight at Ground Control. Pours a bright, clear gold with a finger of white head that laces the glass. Aroma of malts - pils, pale, cracker - with straw, light grass, and light citrus. Flavor of lemon citrus, pale and crackery and bready malts, straw, and grass. Dry, malty finish. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and an unbelievably clean mouthfeel despite the noticeable malts throughout. So good. Could drink this everyday.

Brilliant straw gold with white head that fades rather quickly. Aroma is grassy, herbal, and slightly citrusy/lemony. Flavor is sweet pils malt at the front, crackery malt and hops in the middle leading to a grassy, dry finish. Carbonation is pretty high but it seems right for this beer. Finish is quite dry. A very tasty and sessionable beer. One of the best american lagers out there.

Bottle. Clear light gold with a quickly settling thick white head. Aroma is slightly skunked with some honey-like sweetness and some Noble hop notes. Taste mostly follows suit but adds some light tea notes. Medium mouthfeel and strong carb. Seems like this is past its prime. Will try to re-rate.

Pour from growler, 03/19/2014. Pours brilliant pale gold, clear, frothy white head fades to rest hazy on the surface, medium ring of lacing. Aroma is light sweet hay, bread, with a nice leafy noble hop presence, mildly spicy herbal character, touch of lemon. Taste is light pilsener malts, mild honey and hay,assertive (for the style) hop presence, spicy grassy character with light lemon and lingering bitterness, dry finish, some cracker notes coming through. Light body, refreshing, easy to drink. Nice.

Pale straw pour with bone white head. Bubbles continue to maintain a crown. This bottle has to be pretty fresh, but there is still a good bit of skunk in the nose. Also a little dough and herbal noble hops. A little skunk in the flavor as well. Honeyed toast, mint, lemon. Pretty firm bitterness in the back . Light and dry. Mouthfeel is moderate. A really nice crisp refreshing pilsner. Seems to have the same problem as Prima Pils, which is that it's a great beer that is just destined to suffer from life in a bottle. I'd love to see this one on tap or in cans.

12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear gold body that supports a thin white head of foam. The aroma offers up a nice mix of pilsner malts, spicy hops, a dash of floral hops and then a faint grainy malt note in the background. The taste starts with a pleasing fairly rich mix of pilsner malts and spicy slightly onion like hoppiness. Sweetness and more pilsner malts with a dash of floral hop bubble up about midway and into the finish. I love the hoppiness and how they keep the pilsner malt and malt sweetness in check.
